On the final weekend of the tournament, it’s a repeat of this year’s last day, with Italy v Scotland kicking off events, before England have the chance to gain retribution against Ireland, in a potential title decider.

2017 Six Nations fixtures
The Six Nations kicks-off with a twist. This year the venerable tournament has added bonus points, so if you score four tries or above, you get an extra point, likewise, if you are seven points or less behind the opposition you’ll pick up a point. Another change is you’ll pick up four points for a win, and if a team wins a Grand Slam, an automatic three points is added, making sure that they cannot be overtaken.
Enjoy the tournament!!
